You wrote the words “peace,” “love,” and “joy” in the background of your design. What’s one thing that brings you joy?

My family, and playing with my brother.

How would you define the word “peace?”

Calmness and happiness.

What’s your favorite holiday memory?

For a whole bunch of weeks, my dad was in the basement working on something, he said it was just electrical. And then on Christmas Day the walls were all wrapped up and something across the ceiling. And it was a rock wall and monkey bars in our basement! It was one of our Christmas presents.

Do you want to be an artist when you grow up?

No, not really. I like horses, so I want to be a famous horseback rider or a horse trainer.

What are you most excited about this year for Christmas?

Probably getting presents, and having presents all wrapped in my wrapping paper! One of our friends, she used my wrapping paper to wrap a package of candy.
